Honorable David Briley, Mayor
and Members of the Metro Council
Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County
One Public Square, Suite 106
Nashville, TN 37201

Dear Mayor Briley and Councilmembers:

Please provide a copy of this letter to all the members of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County (“Metro”) Council at the next meeting of the Council and enter it into the minutes of the meeting.

Our office received a request from Metro on January 17, 2019, for the retroactive approval of tax anticipation notes (“TANs”) for fiscal year 2019 in the total amount of $391,666,020 as the following notes:

• $121,000,000 General Fund Interfund TANs, Series A;
• $95,000,000 Schools General Purpose Fund Interfund TANs, Series B;
• $101,577,720 General Services District Debt Service Fund Interfund TANs, Series C;
• $62,293,920 Schools Debt Service Fund Interfund TANs, Series D; and
• $11,794,380 Urban Services District Debt Service Fund Interfund TANs, Series E.

The TANs were issued as interfund loans from the following funds: Water & Sewerage Services Fund, Education Services Special Revenue Fund, Event and Marketing Fund, Farmers Market Non-Bonded Capital Project Fund, General Fund Reserve Fund, General Government Self Insurance Fund, Hotel Occupancy General Fund, Hotel Tourist Promotion Fund, Information Technology Services Fund, Injured on Duty Fund, Municipal Auditorium Fund, Office of Fleet Management Fund, Government Services Special Revenue Fund, School Self Insurance Fund, Solid Waste Operations Fund, Stormwater Operations Fund, and Surplus Property Auction Fund (the “Lending Funds”).

The request included Resolution No. RS2019-1545 adopted on January 15, 2019, by the Metro Council authorizing the issuance of TANs. Metro also provided cash flow forecasts prepared by the Metro Finance Office which support the need to issue the TANs for the General Fund, Schools General Purpose Fund, General Services District Debt Service Fund, School Debt Service Fund, and Urban Services District Debt Service Fund, and the ability of Metro to make an interfund loan from the Lending Funds.

The financial information presented by Metro represents assertions of its financial condition and may or may not reflect the current or future financial condition of Metro.

Limitations on Tax Anticipation Notes

Local Governments in Tennessee are authorized to issue TANs pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 9, Chapter 21 for the purpose of meeting appropriations made for the current fiscal year in anticipation of the collection of taxes and revenues of that fiscal year, subject to the prior approval of the Comptroller of the Treasury.

The authorized amount of TANs must not exceed 60% of the annual appropriation for the fund receiving proceeds from the loan and future revenues projected must be sufficient to provide for the payment of the TANs by June 30, 2019.

We have determined that Metro’s request meets the percentage limitation described above. Additionally, the cash flow forecasts for the General Fund, Schools General Purpose Fund, General Services District Debt Service Fund, School Debt Service Fund, and Urban Services District Debt Service Fund reflect revenues sufficient to repay the TANs.

Fiscal Year 2019 Budget

Metro adopted its fiscal year 2019 budget on June 19, 2018.

Debt Management Policy

Metro provided a copy of its debt management policy, and at the next council meeting, is required to submit a Report on Debt Obligation for each note to indicate that the notes comply with Metro’s debt policy. If Metro amends its policy, please submit the amended policy to our office.

Tax Anticipation Notes (TANs) Approval

This letter constitutes retroactive approval of TANs in the total amount of $391,666,020 for the General Fund, Schools General Purpose Fund, General Services District Debt Service Fund, School Debt Service Fund, and Urban Services District Debt Service Fund, all as interfund loans from the Lending Funds.

Pursuant to T.C.A. Title 9, Chapter 21 the Metro Mayor and Council Members shall comply with the following:

• A Report on Debt Obligation, Form CT-0253, shall be filed along with each note with the Metro Council at the next meeting, with a copy filed with our office;
• A balanced budget shall be maintained with no cash deficits and sufficient to pay operating and debt service costs; and
• The TANs shall be repaid no later than June 30, 2019, and documentation of repayment shall be provided to the Metro Council and our office within 15 days of repayment, but no later than June 30, 2019.

Report on Debt Obligation

We are enclosing a Report on Debt Obligation, Form CT-0253. Pursuant to T.C.A. § 9-21-151, this form is to be completed and filed with the governing body of the public entity issuing the debt, with a copy (including attachments, if any) filed with the Director of the Office of State and Local Finance by mail to the address on this letterhead or by email to SLF.publicdebtform@cot.tn.gov. A fillable PDF of Form CT-0253 can be found at http://www.comptroller.tn.gov/sl/pubdebt.asp. No public entity may enter into additional debt if it has failed to file the Report on Debt Obligation.
